White Chicken Pizza – 7 Points +

White Chicken Pizza


Who doesn’t love a relaxed evening with a home made pizza and a movie? Sometimes it’s nice to have a different flavor of pizza. This delicious pizza is perfect for a quick and easy dinner. It goes great with a simple side salad. I make my own gluten free pizza crust, but any crust will work for this one. If you make your own crust, make a double batch. That way you can use one and freeze one for an easy meal later. Wrap the crust in two layers of plastic wrap and one layer of aluminum foil, and it’ll stay fresh for a couple of months in the freezer – that is, if it lasts that long. Don’t be afraid of the cream sauce, it’s very simple to make. Just remember to keep whisking, even if you don’t think it’s working. The flour will clump up once you put the milk in, but if you just keep whisking, a scrumptious creamy garlic sauce will suddenly appear.

Flatout Thin Crust Pizza Recipe – 8 Points +

Flatout Thin Crust Pizza Recipe

Pizza is just one of those foods that I could eat every single day for the rest of my life. I absolutely adore it in all forms, and am always willing to try just about any new Weight Watchers Pizza Recipes that I find. A long time ago, I came across Flatout Flatbreads, and have been using them in a variety of personal sized, thin crust pizza recipes ever since. But it recently came to my attention that not everyone is aware of Flatout Flatbreads (and their whole amazing line of products), so I thought it’d be beneficial to post a simple pizza recipe that is made with one of these low calorie flatbreads. The options for Flatout pizza recipes are endless, but I think the key when making them is to use a decent amount of cheese. I typically use about 1/2 cup on my thin crust pizzas, and I think it works great. Sure I could do less and shave a point or two off the total Points +, but what is pizza without CHEESE?! The Points are worth it, in my opinion. And because there is a TON of fiber in these flatbreads, they are very satisfying and will help keep you full for quite a while. So, if you are a pizza fanatic like moi, get in the kitchen with some Flatout Flatbreads, and share your favorite low calorie pizza recipe with us!!

Low Calorie Pepperoni Pizza Recipe – 6 Points +

Low Calorie Pepperoni Pizza

If there was one food I HAD to eat everyday for the rest of my life, without a doubt, it would be pepperoni pizza. I just never not want it. So in order to stay on track with my Weight Watchers Points Plus Daily Allowance, I had to come up with a low calorie pizza recipe that was not only low in Points Plus, but that also tasted close to what I might buy at a local pizzeria. Sure, there are tons of “healthy” frozen pizzas on the market, but they are loaded with sodium and preservatives, and just don’t satisfy my pepperoni pizza craving. So by using a whole wheat crust, some reduced fat cheese, using turkey pepperoni, and by mixing some butternut squash puree in with the pizza sauce, I was able to lower the calories and fat, and increase the fiber content. The end result was a slice of pepperoni pizza for just 6 Points +. It may not be Papa John’s, but it tastes fantastic, and it’s a much healthier and low Points Plus way to get my pepperoni pizza on!
